Lancia LC2 Group C Car

Lancia rally and race cars from the 70’s and 80’s remain to be the stuff of automotive legend, and when it comes to Group C cars nobody will argue that the LC2 with Martini sponsored livery is amongst the most memorable. Co-developed with Ferrari, the all Italian racer is powered by what is essentially a 308 engine with twin turbos attached to it, giving it an astounding 750 hp to enable it to compete against their German rivals at Porsche who were fielding 956’s, then later 962’s. Unfortunately, even though they didn’t prove to as reliable as they were gorgeous, they were still able to manage a few wins for the manufacturer between 1983 and 1986. Lancia therefore terminated any further attempts at Group C in 1986 to concentrate their efforts on rallying with the Delta Integrale, which turned out to be one of the most successful rally cars in history.
